Squash Casserole....yummmm!


I love squash casserole! I've actually never made it but have had it before. I had some squash in the freezer and decided to make it tonight for dinner. We're still living out of the pantry, turns out I won't get to go grocery shopping until Saturday or maybe Sunday.

This recipe turned out absolutely yummy! I will definitely make it again!

Squash Casserole
2 1/2 pounds of yellow squash, sliced
1/2 stick of butter plus 2 tablespoons
1 small onion, diced
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup of mayonnaise
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
about 3/4 of a sleeve of buttery crackers (I used the generic ritz kind), crushed

Cook squash, covered, in a small amount of water. Cook until tender, then drain well. I used a colander to drain them and then pressed on them with some paper towels to get as much water out as I could.

Return squash to the pot. Combine with 1/2 stick of butter and mash well. Add onion, eggs, mayo, sugar, salt and cheese.

Pour into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Mine measured 2 quarts so I'm sure any similar dish will do.

In a microwave safe bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the microwave. Add crushed crackers and stir well. Sprinkle on top of squash mixture.

Bake at 325 for 30-45 minutes.

So tonight we had baked chicken breasts, squash casserole, buttered noodles and brussel sprouts. And yes, Rocket boy and Princess LOVE brussel sprouts. All Monkey ate were the noodles and a little bit of chicken. I made sure to give him a little of each thing on the plate though. Hopefully he'll eat more veggies eventually. *sigh*

Tomorrow we are off for an appointment for Monkey with the Urologist in Nashville. He had surgery on his kidneys in May. So far everything seems to be working well so hopefully his appointment will go well.

Have a great day!
God bless,
Amanda

Mmmm. This looks delicious. I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

I hope my kiddo likes the vegetables her dad does not eat, so I can serve them and be the majority! I love squash and brussel sprouts, but he won't touch them.
Sounds like a wonderful dinner! I have a bag of squash I need to cook up soon. It's good to find another bit of squash inspiration!

Oh goodness gracious, I love these casseroles. We always begged my mother to make it for the holidays. It's good to hook with another Tennessean - what part of the state do you call home?

A Civil War Recipe..... Oatmeal Pie

Princess came home with an assignment to to a Civil War project. There were several options but she and I always gravitate to the ones that involve cooking. So we chose to make a recipe from the Civil War time to share with her class. Can I just say how grateful I am for the internet when it comes to these school projects? We looked online and found many different recipes. I wanted one that used ingredients I already had on hand and hopefully one that would be a bit tasty.

I finally found a forum where people were sharing Civil War recipes and someone had shared one for Oatmeal Pie from Charleston, South Carolina. Apparently, during the Civil War, pecans were in short supply. So oatmeal was subbed for pecans to make a sort of mock pecan pie.

This recipe is very tasty and really easy. It does remind me of a pecan pie, but at the same time a little reminiscent of an apple crisp because of the oatmeal and the cinnamon. Very delicious! I'm hoping her class really enjoys it. She said t…

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

There is a take and bake place in town that has the most amazing lemon chicken artichoke soup. I decided to try to make a copy of it at home. This soup isn’t exactly like the one at the local shop here, but it’s close. This recipe is so good and highly addictive! I encourage you to try it as soon as you can!

Lemon Chicken Artichoke Soup

Ingredients:
½ stick of butter
1 tbsp oilive oil
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 yellow onions, diced
2 12oz jars of quartered artichoke hearts in water (drained, rinsed and diced)
2-3 lemons
2-3 cups of cooked chicken breasts, diced
1 tsp of dried oregano
8 cups of reduced sodium chicken broth
2 cups of half & half
Salt and pepper to taste

In a 5-6 qt. stockpot over medium heat, melt butter and add the olive oil. Sauté the onions until translucent, add the garlic and then cook for a minute more. Add the artichoke hearts and salt and pepper if desired and cook for 3-5 minutes. Next, add your chicken stock. Allow this to come to a boil,…

Salt-Free Ranch Dressing Mix

I don't know about you but I really enjoy ranch dressing. The stuff in the bottle is okay, but if you look at the ingredients it contains some not so good stuff like MSG and added sugar. It also has a lot of added sodium. I'm trying to watch my sodium so I decided to make a salt-free ranch mix, then I can control the salt whenever I make the dressing or add it to a recipe. It's super easy to make your own ranch mix. If you make a batch of this up, you can have it already on hand to make ranch dressing or add it into other recipes. Let's get started!

Salt-free Ranch Dressing Mix

Ingredients:
4 Tbsp of dried parsley
4 tsp of dried dill
4 tsp of onion powder
4 tsp of minced dried onion
2 tsp of garlic powder
1 tsp of ground black pepper

Combine the spices in a bowl and from here you can process them for a bit in a mini food processor to mix well and make some of the parsley smaller or you can use a coffee grinder as a spice grinder. Then place in a container and …
